Remember this night well, because it’s something you’ll tell your grandchildren about, even if you voted for the other
guy. Barack Obama has been elected the next president of the United States of America.
Obama’s election as the first African-American president is a watershed moment, and if this great country is very lucky it will be a moment that inspires a new generation of Americans to work for the common good, to strive for and achieve things they had perceived as out of their reach, to recognize that the promise of this nation is and always has been theirs.
Tonight is a night to remember.
